Subject: CRIMINALLY OVERLOOKED- One in my infrequent series "Needs an upgrade- but don't miss the show"
The soundboard is corroding, but this show shines- it should have two dozen reviews. The sequence from Estimated > He's Gone > Eyes is one of the best trios of the year- and it was a good year for most shows. Do not let the lack of stars deter you from listening to this show.

So glad to see this up. Yeah the recording may not be a 5 but this show was a rocking good time.Like said earlier I think the 'He's Gone' was done for John and man what a meltdown of a number too. As I remember Airto Moreira and Flora Purim were also on stage at some time in this gig.This was also the last concert at the Swing before it burned to the ground. I always wondered about the strange decorations that hung from the ceiling. Listen to this gem!

Subject: Big deal, it ain't a 5 for "sound"; t'was a special nite
I'm for SB quality, but having this show available is great. This was the boy's 1st show following John Lennon's murder and everyone was pretty down; the San Berdoo Sheriffs were out in force and feisty(great). The show had a somber feel and Jerry of course tuned right into it(Peggy O', He's Gone)'till he took a normally "Ugh, another "Round and Round" to a cookin' level that had that old dump rockin'. Folks, I doubt anything like those days will appear in our lifetimes(the world could use some "good old Grateful Dead" about now though)so I for one cherish these recordings and THANKS to the people uploading 'em. Enough ramblin'.

Subject: Great show!
I was rather surprsed at the low rating below, made purely on the basis of the sound quality. Yes, the sound here is not quite what we have come to expect from GD SBDs. There are obviously a few generations between the original recording and this. Some bass-end distortion creeps in at times. Still, it's a relatively clear concert, easily listenable. And the music cooks! I'm not a huge 1st-set fan in general, but the first set here made me stand up and take notice. Especially Jerry's soloing all through "Greatest Story." Anther highlight is the "China Cat>Rider>Estimated Prophet" tun to start the second set. 1980 is a mixed bag, but this show stand out as one of the better sets, regardless of the somewhat sub-par sound. Recommended!

Subject: Sound is not so good
This is a sound board recording but it is not too good. It sounds like it was a decent show to start with, but the sound quality prevents me from listening to much of it.
The Audience recording is better
